If not an official press release, then leave it up to the ESRB to out an unannounced game to the masses. The ratings board has details posted about an upcoming Shutter Island game being developed for the Nintendo DS.
The game is said to be a puzzle game, taking place at the eerie Ashecliffe Hospital featured in the hit film. As a U.S. marshal, your job is to solve the many mysteries of murder that plague the hospital.
While it’s not an Inception game, at least one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s puzzling flicks will get the game treatment.
Once again, no Virtual Console titles this week :sigh: but there are a slew of WiiWare and DSiWare titles for you to check out! Read below for Nintendo’s official press release.
ESRB Rating: E10+ (Everyone 10 and Older) – Fantasy Violence
Price: 700 Wii Points™
Description: As Captain Jay, you take control of a space jet deployed on an alien world. The planet you’re on is inhabited by the Knagar, a race of big, green, self-important bullies. You must fight your way through, outsmart them and save the survivors. Fortunately, Jay can always throw a nice punch line when things get ugly. Fight floating drones, destroy Knagar ships, attack turrets and deal with gigantic worms before they swallow your ship or electrocute you. Access your handy map to avoid getting lost on one of six big levels. Pick up keycards, deactivate force fields, save survivors and collect power-ups. Rearm your ship to use one of six weapons, including the Quark Dispeller, Anti-Matter Thrower and Mega Rockets. Recharge your ship’s battery by flying over heat-bursting volcanoes. Then use the surplus to power your weapons or energy shield. Enjoy humorous dialogue that accompanies players throughout the game.
